Thank you so much for your kind words -- I was worried about putting some of the simple stuff in, but for myself when I'm reading something by someone else, I always like to get the history and suchlike...

That was a fantastic summary. Thanks for spending the time to educate us that little bit more.

Max, very good mythbusting material. I recall that National Semi had stacked ICs for the NSC800, a Z-80 clone. You could simply plug RAM chips, eeprom, and a peripherals chip on top of the processor, to have a full computer on the DIP-40-pin socket of the processor. It could be called a "paleo-3D" technology [grin]. - Jonny

PPS. Must have mis-spelt something, your Fundamentals of FPGAs is here http://www.eetimes.com/electrical-engineers/education-training/courses/4000134/Fundamentals-of-FPGAs And very good it is too, almost exactly what I asked for. So you can have the next 3 sundays off....

PS Max I put FPGA fundamentals into the search box of the EETimes home page and I see you did something on this in 2008...however I get 404 errors on all of the links. Maybe you could resurrect that as a starting point? Not sure if I have seen it before...

One thing I would like, that you would probably do very well Max, is something on how FPGAs are programmed, say from a specific application idea through the verilog/VHDL (not sure if that's right) to the actual programming. Next time you have a spare sunday (or three...)???

How could I make you another Sunday to keep writing good stuff like this? Coffee, Tea , or Me? Sorry, the humor should stop by coffee, tea, or money, definitely Not Me! Jimmy

I must admit that I forgot to mention the whole concept of monolithic 3D ICs. I understand the concept, but I'm not well aware as to the nitty-gritty details, including how usable it is.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
